Voltage Gage

I've noticed since I installed my voltmeter that the battery condition is 12 1/2 volts after sitting overnight, 14.8 on start up, and it shows 14.5 when running, occasionally dropping to 13. Not sure what the voltage regulator is set up for, but this seems completely normal to my way of thinking. Anybody have similar experience? Comments Please! RD

Not a problem, just sharing what I see. Still good to have real time read outs!

Makes it nice having gauges.I think some of the newer ones have them built in the instrument panel now.
